Government Quotes

Quotes about Government

  • A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government. --Alexander Hamilton, Essay in the American Daily Advertiser, 1794
  • The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its citizens, and command the respect of the world. --George Washington, First Inaugural Address, 1789
  • December 22, 1820, to celebrate of the 200 year anniversary of the Pilgrim landing at Plymouth Rock, Webster declared: Lastly, our ancestors established their system of government on morality and religious sentiment. Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely be trusted on any other foundation than religious principle, nor any government be secure which is not supported by moral habits....Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens... Finally, let us not forget the religious character of our origin. Our fathers were brought hither by their high veneration for the Christian religion. They journeyed by its light, and labored in its hope. They sought to incorporate its principles with the elements of their society, and to diffuse its influence through all their institutions, civil, political, or literary. Let us cherish these sentiments, and extend this influence still more widely; in full conviction that this is the happiest society which partakes in the highest degree of the mild and peaceful spirit of Christianity.
